More on the places in the Philippines visited by your favorite Korean stars
Aside from Manila, some of the provinces in the Philippines have been graced by the presence of Korean celebrities. That’s no surprise since we only have the best beach destinations in the world. In fact, Manila Bulletin reports that Boracay, Cebu, and Palawan are included in “The Best Islands in the World” list (Boracay even took the top spot) of Conde Nast Traveler, one of the world’s leading luxury and travel magazines.

So which Korean celebs have spent some time under the tropical sun in the Philippines? Read on to find out.

This handsome actor, known for his title role as Captain Yoo Si Jin in the hit drama Descendants of the Sun, had been to Cebu in 2011 for a photoshoot for a Korean magazine, W. His visit was very discreet that most fans only knew that he was in the country when the magazine came out on the stands. With Joong Ki’s popularity nowadays, we’re pretty sure his Filipino fans will be more than eager to welcome him back to the Philippines—hopefully soon.

Speaking of Cebu, Joong Ki’s label mate, Park Bo Gum, arrived on the island just last Friday, October 21, 2016.

The young and charismatic actor was in Cebu together with the cast and crew of the recently concluded drama Love in the Moonlight (also known as Moonlight Drawn By Clouds) to celebrate the show’s outstanding success.

Freedom Cebu! What a beautiful day👍🏻

Together with Bo Gum were his fellow actors Kim Yoo Jung, Jung Jin Young (also of popular K-Pop boyband B1A4), and Kwak Dong Yeon. The cast and crew were in Cebu until October 25, 2016.

The beautiful white sands of Boracay never fails to impress visitors. So, when Woo Hyun of the multi-awarded K-Pop boyband Infinite took time off from his busy schedule, he chose to seek solace in Conde Nast Traveler’s “Best Island in the World.”
